Glen Schofield gets rekt over “crunch culture” tweet

If you care about your job, you don’t have a nine-to-five mentality. From that, I can tell that Dolly Parton didn’t really care about her job in 1980. Working overtime is just one way to show that you really want the best for your employer, according to Glen Schofield. Because everyone can moan about the so-called “crunch culture”, but secretly, people who love their work don’t mind the whole culture at all.

It is unfortunately no longer available on his timeline, but Schofield had a juicy tweet about it. The Striking Distance boss is all too proud of his almost overwrought developers who work 7-day 15-hour workweeks to get The Calippo Balisto Callisto Protocol done on time. Not because they’re forced to. Because they want to.

“I only talk about the game during an event. We are working 6-7 days a week, nobody’s forcing us. Exhaustion, tired, Covid but we’re working. Bugs, glitches,”

“perf fixes. 1 last pass thru audio. 12-15 hr days. This is gaming. Hard work. Lunch, dinner working. U do it cause ya luv it.”

See? Glen Schofield does not force anyone to stay away from their family. His team simply loves working overtime. Anyway, the rest of the world really sees this as promoting a crunch culture, something that others really want to get rid of. Because the candle burns out quickly when it burns from both sides. And to insinuate that you don’t care about your job because you don’t work overtime, that’s not really okay either. So up and at it, back in the Twitter-pen for Glen.

Now, all is well again now that Glen has apologized, right? Well… no. Meanwhile, half the internet has already fallen for Glen’s deleted tweet, which in turn leads to more tweets. For example, Jason Schreier (who doesn’t know the guy?) thinks it’s easy for Glen to talk. Bragging about how much your devs love to work overtime when refusing it could probably cost them dearly, shame on you!

Even Mat Piscatella, (He/Him) and Executive Director at The NPD Group according to LinkedIn, thinks Glen’s pride is misplaced, to say the least.

Ah yes… the Twitter. The one place where you shouldn’t vent your opinions or hash out your personal vendettas. Unfortunately, people only go there to do both…
